Jake DeBrusk was already on track to return after the All-Star Break. Now, the Bruins are being as definitive as they can about the winger’s status.
Head coach Jim Montgomery told reporters Tuesday that DeBrusk is almost certainly going to return in the Bruins’ first game after the All-Star break, at home against the Washington Capitals on Feb. 11. That will mark 13 games missed for DeBrusk before getting back into the lineup.
“I’d be shocked if he doesn’t play,” Montgomery said of DeBrusk against the Capitals, per WBZ-TV’s Dan Roche.
